This master course combines presentations, discusssions and practical work.It challenges participants to acquire and disseminate knowledge about a complex subject in a way that is very common to highly skilled "knowledge workers". The lecturers have made a pre-selection of relevant books, articles and web references (see literature). Besides an introduction of each topic, the role of the lectures is that of moderator.
During the course the participants will study that material, discuss and present it jointly, in order to share the newly acquired insights (see schedule). Attendance of all meetings is mandatory and active participation on the meetings will be evaluated as part of the final grade.
Format of each week's meeting is:
Before each meeting, all participants are required to read the material indicated for each topic (minimally the material marked with "all").
